    It's beyond me tbh.

    Pulling down monuments doesn't change the past. Maybe some things often glossed over like unsavoury behaviours should be questioned/taught more often.

    I do think there is an agenda being pushed and many people of colour are calling out those who fund/support BLM, the whole issue is being politicised - who will profit and who will be in exactly the same boat or worse in a few years time?

    Edit

    Re: Oppostion, this happened fairly local to me and it turned into a shouting match as Police separated the 2 opposing crowds.
    Obcenities were exchanged and those protecting the war memorial were branded 'drunk racist white old white men'. There is a short video clearly depicting the whole exchange of insults :think:
    As with anything it's easy to edit and fit into a narrative.

    I don’t normally get involved but I totally agree regarding the statues and I’m embarrassed the police stood there and did nothing. It’s criminal damage however you look at it. Based on this I should be able to go out and brick a window of somewhere because I don’t believe in their way of doing things or whatever and my defence would be you let people pull a statue down and chuck it in a river and didn’t do anything so what’s the difference.

    I personally think its unlikely that slaves weren't used in the creation of the pyramids. Just because you find some tombs of "workers", doesn't mean that slaves weren't used as if they didn't have a tomb to be later found, then how would you know that they were there or not.

    It was a time of slavery, everyone did it and it was the done thing that many years ago. It's just people wanting to change the facts to suit their own agenda.

    I personally believe it could well have been a mix. I don't believe that just because they found a tomb or more dedicated to workers, that it was built by paid workers alone. Egypt has an extensive history and one riddled with slavery, i'd say its naive to think that they didn't have slaves involved in some way

    The Security company I work for SecureGB are putting a team together to protect the war memorials. Most of them are ex-army anyway so it's closer to home for them.

    However this entire 'protest' is a joke. Protesting for a man who previously had done a 7 year sentence for aggravated burglary (the aggravated part is where he held a gun to a pregnant woman's belly). He got such a low sentence due to making a plea deal.

    On the day he died he paid for fags with a fake $20 bill. When the teenage store clerk told him it was fake George Floyd, who was 6,6 and an ex-bouncer, told him where to go and effectively stole the cigarettes.

    The kid who worked there did the right and phoned the police. When they turned up he violently resisted arrest (they had a right to put a bullet in him just for that btw).

    In the following toxicology report he was found to have both methamphetamine and fentanyl in his system.

    This 'gentle giant' crap needs to stop. He deserved to get his windpipe crushed purely for the disgusting burglarly he'd done previously.

    Oh and for the record he suffered from hypertension. Real smart to be taking meth and fentanyl then, not to mention committing a crime that of course was going to cause stress when he was inevitably arrested.

    And what about the Guardian that supported the Confederacy during the American Civil War. Cancel them. https://twitter.com/TitaniaMcGrath/status/1270818012367650816 Che Guevara - racist and Karl Marx - racist and anti-Semitic (sorry forgot Jews dont count). And Corbyn and McDonnell are quite keen on them - racist adjacent. Cancel them. You can make a case against almost anyone you want.
